And it's impressive to me as a photographer that Leica remains 
committed to quality and that they are still very reluctant to do 
anything that might compromise the integrity of their fantastic 
lenses.  They could have cut corners in quite a few instances and 
ended up with a cheaper camera, but it wouldn't have been a Leica.
